When You Find Yourself On the Right Track – Everything Suddenly Gets Much Easier


Tom Corley boats - crop

Success takes a long time, for those who succeed. Unfortunately, very few succeed.

Why is success so elusive?

Most individuals who are pursuing financial success are doing it wrong.

What do you mean when you say, they are doing it wrong?

There are two big things that prevent individuals from succeeding:

#1 – You Are Not Doing What You’re Supposed to be Doing

When you are not doing what you’re supposed to be doing, this means you are not engaged in an activity for which you have a natural, innate talent. When you are engaged in something you are just not naturally good at, it’s like trying to fit a circular object in a square hole. Because you are trying to be something you are not, your work life is hard and unfulfilling. This shows up in your net pay check.

When you are engaged in something you were meant to be doing, this means you are exploiting some natural, innate talent that is unique to you. Your brain alerts you in one of two ways, when you stumble upon a natural, innate talent:

  1. It’s Easy – The task is easier for you to perform than it is for other people.
  2. Passion – You enjoy the activity. When you are engaged in some activity you like or love, time flies by and you don’t want to stop doing it.

We all have natural, innate talents but almost none of us every figure out what they are. Consequently, most do not enjoy what they do for a living, feel unfulfilled and the pay they receive keeps them perpetually stuck in mediocrity.

#2 – You Are Following the Wrong Path to Wealth

There are 4 Path’s To Wealth:

  1. Saver-Investor Path
  2. Big Company Climber Path
  3. Virtuoso Path
  4. Dreamer-Entrepreneur Path

Everyone inherits certain genes from their parents, which helps shape their personality. Also, everyone is raised in different environments – we are all raised in different households, in different neighborhoods, go to different schools, etc.

Our unique genes and upbringing help to shape the individuals we become as adults.

Everyone’s different.

And because everyone’s different, each path to creating wealth, is different for each person.

Some people are outgoing or shy. Some are risk takers or risk averse. Some can shoulder great stress, without affecting their health and relationships; others crumble under too much stress.

You see, everyone is different and because everyone is different, their path to accumulating wealth must be in alignment with their particular personality.

For example, shy, risk averse, low stress-tolerant individuals would find the life of a Dreamer-Entrepreneur or Big Company Climber, ill-suited for their specific personality. Most likely, they would hate being in either of those two work environments and their pay would reflect this.

Such individuals would be better suited pursuing wealth by following the Saver-Investor or Virtuoso Path. Either path would work best for them, given their personality type.

Likewise, outgoing individuals who love high-risk challenges and seem immune to stress, are perfectly suited for the Big Company Climber Path or the Dreamer/Entrepreneur Path. If these individuals worked in a back-office job, they would very likely dislike their job.

Because there are four paths to wealth, it is critical for those who seek wealth to understand which path is right for them. If you pick the wrong path, success will remain elusive.

When you eventually stumble upon the right track, you know it. Everything starts to get much easier for you. When you are on the right track, it’s as if everything in your universe comes into perfect alignment.

When you are on the right track, life rewards you financially and emotionally.
